Dumping /var/log./messages using 'cat' is failing
I am trying to dump /var/log/messages using cat command, but it is failing.
First column of command "ls -l /var/log/messages" is '?rwsrwsrwt'.
What is that I am doing wrong? Please guide me.
Thanks in advance
This is my messages file.
Hm... seems like the file mode bits are messed up (rwsrwsrwt means that every possible bit is set there).
chmod 644 /var/log/messages
and look if this changes them back to
The "?" in front of the mode doesn't look good either... did you check your disk like 'stress_junkie' already proposed?
Any other files in /var/log or elsewhere with the same symptoms?
